WINTER ACTIVITIES: ALL ABOUT SKIING
Skiing is one of the White Mountains’ most popular winter attractions, and for good reason!

Lincoln is within 15 minutes of all your favorite ski destinations, including Loon and Cannon. There are plenty of opportunities to take a shuttle out to the mountain and back, so no need to worry about the traffic and parking. Bundle up and plan a ski trip up north that everyone will love!
Outdoor Winter ACTIVITIES: Other Than Skiing
Skiing and snowboarding aren't the only outdoor sports in the White Mountains! Skate on RiverWalk's seasonal ice skating rink, or watch the professionals during one of the skate shows. Layer up and visit the beautifully sculpted ice castles and light show at night, spend the day out snow tubing with friends, take a snowmobile out for a spin, and enjoy a guided snowshoeing hike.
Indoor WINTER ACTIVITIES: Warm & Cozy
Not much of a outdoorsy person? The White Mountains have plenty of indoor activities to take part in too. This region has an arts and culture community that focuses on food and drink, theater, and music, making it near impossible to be bored during your stay. In Lincoln alone, we have breweries like One Love and Woodstock, and Seven Birches Winery. The restaurants in town have been given awards for their state of the art cuisine and service, and several of those restaurants host regular open mics and live music events. Stay warm and relax at the spa, follow up with a wine tasting, and end the day with dinner and a show.
Family Friendly Winter Activities
Give your kids the vacation of a lifetime this winter! Whether your kids like to be outside or inside to stay warm, there is something for the whole family. Ski mountains like Loon have youth ski programs, in which trained instructors teach your children the basics while you hit the slopes! Take the kids to an olympic ice skating show, find the best hills to go snow tubing, or snowshoe with your family at night to see the stars. Too cold outside? Visit Jean's Playhouse for a kid-friendly theatrical experience or spend the afternoon paint pottery at Fired on the Mountain. Learn more about family friendly trip ideas in the White Mountains!
